Scroll zone is active but webpages can't be scrolled

It is obvious that the problem is a compatibility problem. You need to post the problem in the Firefox community to get help.

SOURCE: Acer touchpad scroll is not working

Most likely you need to install the driver for your touchpad. The default windows driver allows the touchpad to function but does not give it the extra features such as scrolling. If you go to Acers support site http://support.acer.com/ , you can download the driver for the touchpad. I looked on the site and did not see a 6903 model, did you mean 6930?
Once installed you can go to the control panel, mouse, and see the extra features.

SOURCE: the touchpad and scroll on my acer aspire 5734z

It sounds like you've accidentally locked the touchpad. To unlock it hit the Fn key (lower left corner, between the CTRL and WIN buttons, it should be labeled with blue Fn label) and F7. That's Fn+F7, press and hold the Fn key, and then hit and release the F7 key, and then release the Fn key. On my Aspire this is the combination to toggle on and off the touchpad. It may be a different combination on your laptop but the rule of thumb is that you need the Fn key and one of the F1-F12 keys. The correct Function key will be labeled with a rectangle and a hand over it, illustrating a touchpad. Once you locate the key, press it and the Fn key as I explained above, and that should be it.

The touch mouse will scroll and move but won't click.


you might have to reset it
Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer.

You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

I have a HP pavillion DV6-1250us Windows vista home premium and i cannot get my mouse to scroll up or down? how do i fix this?


To move the pointer, slide your finger across the TouchPad surface in the direction you want the pointer to go. Use the TouchPad buttons like the corresponding buttons on an external mouse. To scroll up and down using the TouchPad vertical scroll zone (right edge of the touchpad), slide your finger up or down over the lines.

NOTE: If you are using the TouchPad to move the pointer, you must lift your finger off the TouchPad
before moving it to the scroll zone.

On my hp 6735b laptop I would like to turn off the scroll zone on the touch pad if possible.


You don't specify what system are you using. In Windows you have to go to Control Panel, Mouse and Pointing Device properties, and find your touchpad options there, including the scroll areas.
If it's not there, chances are there is a separate application, either in Control Panel, or in the Start Menu, for setting up the touchpad. You can also look in the system tray beside the clock - often there's an icon there for the pointing device.

The scroll zone in my touchpad is not working


You need to go to the Dell website and download the driver for your touchpad for the version of Windows that you are using. Depending on the age of your laptop and the version of Windows there may not be a driver for your touchpad. In that case you might need to use an external mouse instead.

Touchpad Vertical Scroll zone not functioning


you can activate this by
1. going to the control panel on your vista machine, make sure you are in classic view
(2) double click the mouse icon.
(3) From here you will select the "Device Settings" tab,
(4) make sure your Synaptic Pointing device is highlighted and then click the settings button located directly below the "port" column, this will bring up properties for this device.
(5) With all categories in the left hand column collapsed, select "Virtual Scrolling" here is where you will find the box that needs to be checked to enable vertical and/or horizontal scrolling.
(6) make sure the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box is checked.
(7) don't forget to hit apply!
I hope this helped some people. I am using a HP dv7 so your menu may look a little different. Happy holidays.
